"Coming up Roses"
Oil on Linen Panel
12 x 12
The vase in this composition was actually clear glass. However, as I was painting it a Murano-like effect kept coming through. Rather than paint what was actually there, I decided to experiment, go with the flow and see where artistic license took me. Happily, following my mind's eye helped the piece as I think the hazy blue/green glaze on the vessel actually compliments the rich solid color of the roses and adds a sense of mystery. Sometimes... everything does come up roses!
Sorry about the photo. Will attempt to take a better one and post this week.
